Images by Shraddha Borawake

Dress: Paul Smith; Shoes: Vintage Manolo Blahnik ; Sunglasses: Phoebe Couture; Bangles: Alexis Bittar; Purses: Chanel; Hat: Found on the streets of Paris a long long time ago.

Blessed are the streets of New York. If you actually try to find out, you will know that you walk amongst amazing talent all around you at all times. You just didn’t know it before.

How crazy is it that we bumped into the famous fashion designer Kay Unger in Soho. Ofccourse I stopped her because of her attire and that fabulous hat. But honestly I spent like 20 mins talking to her. I just wanted to know everything about her, so I took my time. S very sweetly, watched me get my Fashion “gyan” [knowledge] from Kay. Kay couldn’t have been sweeter.

Kay actually when to Parsons for Fashion Design with Tim Gunn and graduated in 1968. And she has 2 labels: Kay Unger and Phoebe Couture. Both sold at places like Neiman Marcus, etc. And finally, I have to say; meeting a lot of people randomly on the street has been a fantastic learning experience I will cherish forever.
